The 30-year-old isn’t just a reality star – he also runs his own adventure company Four Elements Adventure Bali, so he splits his time between the Indonesian island and his hometown of Perth, Western Australia. 

Among the activities head guide Locky and his team offer are hiking, waterfall tours, camping, mountain biking, scuba diving and more. Basically “all the fun stuff”, as he puts it himself.

“Locky has spent countless amounts of days exploring the island, hidden gems and crazy adventures. He has then been able to hand-craft adventure tours that will get your heart racing, adrenaline pumping and change the way you see Indonesia,” the Four Elements Adventure Facebook page says.

“We offer full day tours all over Bali and surrounding Islands, consisting of hidden waterfalls, snorkelling with manta rays on Nusa Penida, mountain biking through the Baliness jungle, hiking to the top of volcanos, scuba diving through WWII ship wrecks and so much MORE. “

Locky’s love of all things outdoor and adventure started in his early years.

“When I grew up I was passionate about sport then I got more into the outdoors and now I’m trending into business,” he explained in a recent Bachelor trailer.

However, things haven’t always been super glamorous and cool in the career stakes for Locky, who confessed in an exclusive video with Now To Love his first job was picking up dog poop at his dad’s wrecking yard.

“That was fun, didn’t last very long!” he joked.

Locky is arguably most famous for his stint on Australian Survivor‘s second two, where he placed fifth.

The tall, dark and handsome adventure guide then returned for a second shot at victory when he participated in the 2020 All Stars round that was eventually won by international model, David Genat.

Despite being a challenge beast, Locky was the 14th person voted out of the show and became the first member of the jury.

“This season was so much harder than my last season because not only were the challenges bigger but the game play was just massive,” he explained following his elimination.

“You couldn’t come into this game hiding – everything was out in the open.”

Adventure is a big part of Locky’s life and the 2020 Bachelor admits he’s “had some incredible, heart-stopping experiences for both work and fun”, but says starring on the reality dating show “takes the cake.”

“I’ve done a lot of crazy things in my life – jumping off mountains, jumping from buildings, scuba diving through a shipwreck, but being the Bachelor is the craziest thing I’ve ever done,” he admitted in a trailer.
